Shrimp and Lemon Skewers with Feta-Dill Sauce

Ok I know that grilling season is basically over, and I'm sorry I didn't get these to you before now.  But the fact of the matter is, this meal is too awesome to not to share!  So toss on a coat, throw a scarf around your neck and get grilling!  Or, you know, use an indoor grill pan.  Way less of an adventure...but you will be sure to stay warm. 

Shrimp and Lemon Skewers with Feta-Dill Sauce
Source:  Food & Wine


1/2 cup greek yogurt (I used Fage yogurt)
1 scallion, white and green parts, thinly sliced
4 large garlic cloves, minced
2 1/2 Tbs finely chopped fresh dill
1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 pounds peeled and deveined large shrimp
2 lemons, cut into 12 wedges each
Salt and Pepper to taste


Start your grill.  In a medium bowl, mix the yogurt, scallions, 1/4 of the garlic and 1/2 tbs of the dill.  Stir in feta, mashing it slightly.  Season with salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, combine the remaining garlic, 2 tbs of dill and olive oil.  Add the shrimp and lemons, salt and pepper and toss to coat.  Thread 4-5 shrimp and 2 lemon wedges onto a skewer.  Season with salt and pepper and grill over medium-hot grill, turning occasionally, until the shrimp are cooked through, about 5 minutes.  Transfer the skewers to a platter and serve immediately with feta sauce.

I served this with a side of Angel Hair Pasta with Chile Lemon & Arugula but cut way back on the spices as a certain little girl of ours does NOT like the spicy!  Hope you enjoy this super simple and yummy meal!
